Forté Lubricants continues to ramp up interest in its Good Garage Scheme network.

The company has launched a campaign to encourage motorists to keep their engine oil levels topped up.

It is “strongly advising” that drivers who need to top up their oil every 1000 miles visit a member of the Good Garage Scheme.

The ‘Check your Oil’ campaign uses figures quoted by Channel 5’s Fifth Gear.

According to the TV programme:

  • One in 5 vehicles is low on oil
  • 25 cars a day are ruined due to lack of oil
  • The RAC attended 9000 calls last year due to lack of oil

Phil Dugmore, the Good Garage Scheme’s technical manager, said: “The essence of the campaign is to ensure motorists are doing all they can to protect their vehicles’ engines by checking the oil once a week.”
